Pro Wrestling in Milwaukee

In 1978, the World Wide Wrestling Federation Champion was Bob Backlund.

He defeated Superstar Billy Graham at Madison Square Garden. Wrestling in the 70s had great characters like Mad Dog Vachen, Ric Flair, The Crusher, Verne Gagne, Ivan Putski and Wahoo McDaniels. Few people would admit to watching wrestling on television, but it was one of the most-watched programs during the 70s in Milwaukee.
